Students vote Edge Hill University best in UK for accommodation

June 14, 2023

Students have voted Edge Hill University as the best in the UK for accommodation.

The Uni Compare rankings also placed Edge Hill among the top 4% of all universities in the UK in 2023 and revealed that 100% of students who submitted reviews said they would recommend the institution.

The win comes days after Edge Hill was ranked in the top four universities in the North West by the Complete University Guide; the University has also been shortlisted in the best university housing (UK & Ireland) category in the Global Student Living Awards – winners will be announced in October.

Vice-Chancellor John Cater stands near stairs in the Catalyst and smiles at the camera.

Vice-Chancellor Dr John Cater said:

“To top the Uni Compare poll for student accommodation is brilliant news and recognizes the hard work of our staff as much as the high quality of our housing. And it means so much more as the results were based on student reviews.

“Accommodation is vital in helping students decide where to study and it plays a huge part in their university experience so we’re delighted to be right at the top of the rankings.”

The Uni Compare league tables rank all UK universities based on reviews by current and past students, for the benefit of future students. Categories include course quality, graduate careers and student social life, in addition to accommodation.

The Global Student Living Awards are unique and highly-prized because they are the only industry awards based on direct feedback from tens of thousands of students around the world.
